Episode Nine of the At The Well podcast is now available.
In this month’s episode, co-hosts Catholic Youth Parramatta’s Local Engagement Leader, Qwayne Guevara, and Assistant Director Rosie Drum mgl, and writer and mother Joy Adan hosted their first livestreamed episode.
In the light of the Easter Season, the three women discussed what the Resurrection of Christ means to each of them, particularly in the light of the current pandemic.
“It doesn’t matter that we are behind locked doors, Jesus is a ‘door ignorer’. We can barricade ourselves and we can set up boundaries for whatever reason, but Jesus comes in in the midst of it, and whilst he respects our decision, He will come and He will continue to invite us into a deeper relationship with Him. And His Resurrection has meant that there’s absolutely nothing that can stop Him from doing that – not even death, the ultimate fear we have,” Rosie said.
“There’s no boundary that can keep Jesus away because of His Resurrection.”
Joy added, “there is nothing in this world that we will ever come across that He cannot help us through and help us conquer, because He literally conquered everything there is to conquer.”

The idea to start a podcast for women followed the success of several At the Well evenings for young women, which were inspired by the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference’s Year of Youth.
The podcast, the hosts explain, is a chance to build on the joys of the At The Well evenings on a more regular basis, a chance to give a feminine perspective on questions of faith and life, and to continue the conversations sparked during the face-to-face gatherings.
At The Well is an initiative of the Diocese of Parramatta, through its youth ministry Catholic Youth Parramatta.
